This trip tells about the history and culture of a town founded by colonizers more than four centuries ago.
On the tour, you will see the following places: ‘La Alameda’ (a pedestrian road), the Foundational Area (Pedro del Castillo Square), the Aquarium, the ‘Serpentario’ (snakes’ exhibition), the main avenues downtown, the Independencia Square, the Civic neighbourhood and Emilio Civit Avenue, which leads to San Martin Park, one of the most important and impressive green urban areas of the city. At the park, we will see its little forests, the rose garden, an artificial lake and sports clubs until we get to the top of ‘Cerro de la Gloria’ (Glory’s Hill) where we will see a monument to the Liberating Army. Near here, the Amphitheatre Frank Romero Day, where the traditional Harvest Festival is held every year, complements the trip and gives the tourist a general idea of what the capital of Mendoza has to offer. As a complementary option, at a short distance from the park, you can take a tour to ‘El Challao’, Church of the Lourdes Virgin is. This temple congregates religious crowds.
